I have a constant bug when opening the just installed mySQL for sql server and for mySQL server. I get the exact same error message at startup. However, the program still loads.

This is the error message:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Stack Trace:

Hello Imajano,

Just to be sure that we understand well, have you taken these steps?:

  1. You have installed MySQL db and MS SQL Server.
  2. You’ve run TDM3 BETA and the error you report appears in TDM 3.

Is that right? Do we understand well? More details would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks!

I look forward to your reply.





I just realized that I posted the bug in the wrong forum. It was supposed to be for Toad for MySQL and Toad for SQL server not modeler.

Please excuse me.


Hello Imajano,

No problem.

Have a nice day.
